SKIN GRAFT is the long-running solo harsh noise project of Wyatt Howland (Dead Peasant Insurance, Jerk, Relentless Corpse, Gloria, Stark Holy MAA, etc.) based in Cleveland, Ohio active since 2004. He has also some projects next to other artists like: Cops, Dead Peasant Insurance, Jerk, Relentless Corpse, Gloria, Stark Holy MAA, etc. The first time I heard a recording of SKIN GRAFT, was a split with Justin Marc Lloyd and he was available totally free on bandcamp. Shortly after I heard some other recording on the label of Aaron Diloway, although it seemed too hard and noisy. Few days ago I discovered this "Complete with beast" and the truth is that I positively sorprenido. Wyatt Howland seems that this no longer obsessed to doing  pure harsh noise, abstract and without any structure. But now is showing (in my opinion) its most creative, fertile and open-minded side. Still his style, but has incorporated influences from other styles such as ambient, drone, space and experimental. The work is gigantic tape of 100 minutes. But I can assure you will not get bored listening to it at all. Totally the contrary.  8 / 10

"Far worse"
Year:    2011
Country:    US
City:    Cleveland, Ohio

Label:    Monorail Trespassing
Format:    cassette
Tracks:    2
Time:    23 min.
Genre:  electronic

Here's another monorail trespassing release, skin graft's "far worse." Wyatt Howland, the man behind SKIN GRAFT, has been churning out harsh noise since at least 2006, and is also a member of the hardcore band apartment 213. as skin graft, the cleveland-based howland's material has been released by labels including hanson records, chondritic sound, nostilevo, urashima, and many more. Released in early 2011, this album is just as great as one would expect a monorail trespassing release to be. the artwork is minimal and falls right in line with the rest of the monorail trespassing catalog. the music itself is alternatively harsh and ambient, filled with a much wider variety of tones and moods than most harsh noise releases. it also isn't overly dense and at just twenty-three minutes, should be no problem to get through in one sitting. copies are still available directly from the label for only $7.50 including shipping, so grab one now. and if you've been sleeping on other monorail trespassing releases, now is as good a time as any to remedy that - with releases ranging from dreamy ambience to harsh noise wall, there's something for everyone. the packaging and sound quality are first-rate and they ship orders out in no time at all... what are you waiting for?

Time:    29 min.
Genre:    electronic

For the past few years, Wyatt Howland aka SKIN GRAFT has been gravedigging deep into the most dismal and filthy areas of sound. "Drug addict" is one of the most sickening releases I have ever heard...it brings upon such horrible visuals I cannot help my face from squinting and frowning in disgust every time I listen. A stream of filthy water runs near a sickened drug addict shivering in a sewer. Disgusting. Originally as a cassette in 2007 by label "Wagon". Hanson Records reissue containing an extended mix released in 2008 and still available at www.hansonrecords.net
